Farewell Party TONIGHT

Just a reminder that TONIGHT (May 29th) is the farewell party for BMC staff person Paul Carey and BMC producer Billie Bivins. Paul has been covering government meetings and events for the Belmont Media Center since 2007. Billie is the producer of "Make Art, Feel Better," a show where guests create an art project based on a particular theme and then reflect on the experience of making art. This show has just had its fourth anniversary.
